Thank you for your patience,
Our Mission Statement: The Western Pacific Property Inspection Institute is committed to providing those wishing to become professional inspectors of residential real estate and commercial properties, with access to quality education despite work and personal commitments or living in a location which precludes attendance in classroom based programs.

We provide participants with the flexibility to take courses from anywhere in the Province of BC or beyond, while still continuing to work and live in their home communities.

Quick FAQ:

Q: How long does it take? A: Because of the CPBC requirements, it typically takes 6 months to complete the regular program. Two - 3 hour evening webinars per week plus one three day "lab" session in Vernon.

Q: How much does it cost? A: Tuition is $3950 plus $250 Application Fee and $300 Lab Fee for a total cost of $4500 (paid in 2 installments). Textbooks are an extra ($200 - $300 in total). This fee structure is guaranteed to the end of 2019 and subject to review for 2020.

Q: Lab? A: There is a 3 day "hands on" session with a Licensed Inspector in houses here in Vernon. CPBC counts this as "education", not as "field training".

Q: Why does "made in BC" matter? A: Building Performance is different in BC compared to, say Ontario or Florida or Colorado, because of issues like climate and seismic activity, etc. Our home inspection licensing requirements are also unique to BC.
